Antonio Trillanes Calls Blogger Jover Laurio “Deceiver”

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau)  – Blood may be thicker than water, but being a godfather to someone’s wedding won’t prevent him from calling the goddaughter names — like deceiver.

Former Senator Antonio Trillanes, who was a “ninong” at Jover Laurio’s wedding has called the blogger (Pinoy Ako Blog) “manloloko.”

Trillanes was responding to a tweet by Laurio in which, in sarcasm, she congratulated the organizers of the 2019 South East Asian Games for winning an award as the “Best SEA Games Organizer,” allegedly given by the Sports industry Awards Asia (SPIA).

It turns out no such award was given.

Trillanes couldn’t hold back on his criticism of Laurio.  The two are closely identified with the political opposition — the Dilawan.

 

Raissa Robles Denies Posting About Philippines’ Gold Medal Haul At SEA Games

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Self-identified investigative journalist Raissa Robles has categorically denied a social media post attributed to her in which she supposedly described the Philippine’s haul of gold medals at the ongoing SEA Games as “luto” (cooked, implying it was rigged).

In speaking with The Adobo Chronicles, Robles said she never mentioned anything about the gold medals.

She said what she mentioned in her post were the silver medals.

 

Philippines: First Olympic Gold, Fifth Miss Universe Crown?

The Philippines has won 3 silver, 7 bronze but no gold medals since it started participating in the Olympic Games. On the brighter side, the country has had four Miss Universe title holders and is in the top 5 countries with the most crowns.

Now the country has the chance to win its first Olympic gold and its fifth Miss Universe crown.

We pin our hopes on Carlos Yulo and Gazini Ganados.

Yulo recently made headlines when he won gold in the floor exercises at the World Artistic Gymnastics in Stuttgart, Germany.  He will represent the Philippines in next year’s Tokyo Olympics.

Ganados, on the other hand,  is this year’s Philippine representative to the Miss Universe Beauty Pageant to be held in Atlanta, Georgia. Pageant predictions list her among the top favorites to win the crown, and possibly to  nail back-to-back honors for the Philippines.  The reigning Miss Universe is Filipina Catriona Gray.

In fact, odds put Ganados right behind another Asian beauty, Miss Thailand.

So what does it take for Yulo and Ganados to bring home the bacon? Twists and turns — on the exercise floor and the pageant ramp, respectively.

So, Filipinos, gird your loins.  We predict a double victory.

And, you may ask: what credentials does a satire site like The Adobo Chronicles have to make such a prediction?

Well, our motto is: sometimes, life imitates satire.  And we have proven it many times before!
